Indian Medical Association criticizes dissolving Medical Council of India

Says the Stat Governments and the University representative have to be consulted

The Indian Medical Association has criticized the Centre's decision to dissolve the Medical Council of India without consulting the State Governments or the universities' representatives in the body. IMA National Coordinator Dr. N Appa Rao and former Vice Chairman of AP Medical Council, Dr. TV Krishna Rao, prominent ENT surgeon said that the action of the government in scrapping an autonomous body merely to fix its chairman Ketan Desai was not well thought out.

They said that Health was a State subject and it was the duty of the Centre's to contact the State Government for their views. Desai was facing charges for the past nine years and it was a moot question what the eight nominees of the Central Government were doing to rectify the irregularities.

There were part of the 120 member strong council which also had nominees of several universities. The six member committee now constituted to replace the MCI was hardly the solution considering that it was neither representative of various regions of the country nor did it include doctors with expertise in medical education. Dr Appa Rao and Dr Krishna Rao demanded recission of the Centre's decision and suitable amending the MCI Act to treat the malaise. The entire problem arose as the standards for setting up of new medical colleges were lowered.
